See Food And And EAT It!

Last weekend Michelle, myself & the kids had lunch in Sugarlands where a Japanese takeaway has opened. I bought 3 mixed boxes of sushi and the kids ate faster than I did! Yes, they were probably hungry but they decimated the raw fish on rice with vegetables bound up in seaweed leaving me with mere leftovers. Why is this so?

Maybe it's because I am such a stingy mother - I send them to daycare with cut up bits of veggies & cheese, dried fruit and leftovers from dinner so they just get used to it.

At a previous daycare one of my friends confessed that when they dropped their kids off, they all used to check out what Kirk & Roh had for lunch. I gave them things like vego-lasagne, beef jerky, sushi rolls, laksa, full cobs of corn - whatever was edible - but much of it was waaay out of their experience for what was classed as normal food for kids. I found this pretty amusing and wondered what their kids ate every day.

Currently Skye goes to Anna Glover's for daycare. She is Indonesian and they don't "dumb down" food for kids - eating hot sambal is normal. But last week she said she was floored when a kid pointed to the veggie sticks & asked Skye, "What are those things?"

So this week I shall pack an extra serving of veggie sticks for him. I wonder if he will like them?
 I won't be taking any bets,
